    The statement continued, "Lupus needs to be constantly monitored and this minor setback should not affect the rest of her tour. Tickets for tonight's show will be honored at the re-scheduled date that will be announced shortly."

    The announcement comes a day after Toni performed in Kansas City, where Birdman made a special appearance to close the show Friday night.

    Musicians Performing Live on Stage

    Earlier this month, a rep for the singer confirmed to E! News that Braxton recently spent time in a Los Angeles hospital while being treated for her Lupus. She was able to start rehearsals for her upcoming tour soon after.

    "I am so excited about going back on the road and seeing all of my wonderful fans and friends," Braxton said in a statement to E! News. "Everyone's life is complicated and this is just a condition that I live with."

    Since revealing her condition in 2010, the "He Wasn't Man Enough" singer has been open and honest with fans. In fact, she once admitted that taking the stage when she's not feeling her best is one of her most difficult tasks.

    "That's the toughest part, when I have to perform," she explained to Huffington Post back in 2015. "So often, when it's like that, it's a lot of, 'You sing!' to the audience, you know. They kind of help me out a little bit without realizing it."

    She added, "Even if I can't perform, I still figure it out. Sometimes I look back [at] that evening [and] I go, 'How did I get through that?'"
